Dinner At Trivet Restaurant Bermondsey London

We had walked past the Trivet Restaurant numerous times throughout the Covid Lockdown. Now that restaurant dining is back on the menu; we booked a table for two on the terrace. We fancied a fine dining experience somewhere we hadn’t been to before. I suppose you could call Trivet a Modern European restaurant if you had to give it a label. Try the Trivet Restaurant if you want a restaurant in SE1 to celebrate a special occasion, the best restaurants near London Bridge, or fine dining in Southwark.

“At Trivet, you can relax and let your taste buds loose on a culinary journey. It’s a welcoming restaurant where you can enjoy fine dining in the heart of Bermondsey near London Bridge,” Homegirl London.

Trivet Restaurant Menu

The people behind Trivet are Johnny Lake, previously the Executive Head Chef of Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck Group and Isa Bell, the Head Sommelier at The Fat Duck Group. Michele Stanco is the Head Chef who previously worked at, you’ve guessed it, Fat Duck. Johnny and Isa have travelled extensively, bringing their international culinary experiences to the table and wine cellar.

Homemade French Fries with Onion Ketchup

We ate dinner at Trivet, and I tried the vegetarian come vegan dishes while Homeboy opted for fish. Start with a few nibbles, including Wild Thyme Almonds, Olives with Zahter, Salumi, Cheeses, Crackers or Homemade French Fries with Onion Ketchup. If you are ravenous, the Hot Tongue Bun with braised Wagyu-Angus tongue, anchovy mayo and pickles will hit the spot. We settled on the Homemade French Fries, which were fantastic. We missed chips and fries throughout lockdown because we never make them at home. So, we were delighted!

Braised Spikey Artichoke

For my starter, I choose the Braised Spikey Artichoke with a cauliflower mushroom. It was dainty and delightful. Allspice and the sourdough broth was poured over the top when the plate was put in front of me. The portion was small because it was fine dining, but we had the fries, so it was all good!

Cured Red Gurnard and Sea Bass

Meanwhile, Homeboy tucked into the Cured Red Gurnard and Sea Bass. His fish dish looked adorable with the vibrant green beans. He hadn’t tried Cured Red Gurnard before, so he enjoyed the experience. Other starters were Drunk Lobster and Crispy Veal Sweetbreads.

Leek Cannelloni

We were pretty hungry, and as the starters are tiny, so we were eager to try the mains. The only vegan/veggie option was Leek Cannelloni. I thought it would be leeks inside pasta cannelloni tubes. However, it was ricotta and nettle inside a leek tube. Also, on the plate was an oyster mushroom and fava bean ragu. It was a good dish but not outstanding. The leek was a tad challenging to cut up, but they did give you a special knife; even so, I had problems. It tasted OK but not spectacular.

Salt Steamed Turbot

Homeboy was happy with his succulent Salt Steamed Turbot with Jerusalem and baby barigoule artichoke (braised), fireweed and tarragon oil. Other mains were Poached and Roasted Duck, Roast Saddle of Lamb and a more significant portion of the Crispy Veal Sweetbreads. You may wish to add sides of Roasted Beetroot, Radicchio and Castelfranco Salad or Winter Tomato and Tropea Onion Salad.

Almond and Cherry Tart with Pistachio Gelato

You will have room left for dessert. Unfortunately, the Mango Slice and Hokkaido Potato had animal gelatin, so we couldn’t try those. Instead, we had the Almond and Cherry Tart with Pistachio Gelato. The pasty on the tart was delicious, as was the gelato. We also had a cute Canelé (small French Pastry), which was okay and a Butter Tart which was a little cake, and it was sweet and delicious.

Butter Tart

Overall, the food was a high standard, beautifully presented and well thought out. The only dish I wasn’t bowled over with was the Leek Cannellini. It was a pity about the animal gelatin in a couple of desserts. Apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. To give you an idea of prices, the starters are £23-39, mains are £26-43 and desserts £12-14.50. We weren’t drinking wine, but you can choose from over 350 wines from Italy and France. However, you may want to try something from Georgia, Armenia, or Turkey instead. You can buy wine by the glass. Check out the Sake list. If you fancy a drink at the bar and a few nibbles, you can try the cocktails.

Restaurant Interiors

Inside, the restaurant is light, airy and spacious. I love the honeycomb shape wood flooring. The colour palette is neutral. Natural wood sits against polished plaster walls in biscuit colour. The dining tables and chairs have a mid-century modern flavour. It’s the perfect setting for a business lunch, special occasion family meal or intimate anniversary date. The terrace overlooking Snowfields has a large awning that provides shade.
